As Ernie Brown’s star rises, the Turtle Man is taking some locals along for the ride.
Pioneer Playhouse co-founder and producer Charlotte Henson will be featured, along with Pioneer Playhouse, in an episode of "Call of the Wild Man" to air at 10 p.m. Sunday on The Animal Planet.
The snake-off happens Sunday and will show the Turtle Man inside the playhouse’s costume room, as snakes slither through 500 costumes, 200 pairs of shoes, with Brown and Henson close behind.
There will be three stories featured in the 30-minute segment, including the segment at Pioneer Playhouse.
Viewers can check Animal Planet's website, for repeat showtimes, as each show typically airs three times, during the week.
